OBITUARY: Christian John Beug

June 22, 1956 – May 7, 2012

On May 7th, Christian John Beug of Minden, NV, passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by his loving family. He was born to Herb and Ramona Beug in Luverne, MN. The family moved to Detroit Lakes in 1969 where Chris completed his high school education in 1974.

He married Wanda Clements in 1977 and they had a daughter, Trisha. They relocated to Reno soon after where Chris managed Country Kitchen. In 1986, he moved to South Lake Tahoe and started work with Farmer Bros. Coffee until he retired in 2010. Because of his friendly and outgoing nature, he formed many close ties with his customers throughout the Lake Tahoe and Carson area. His work ethic and dedication to get the job done right was inspiring. Chris would greet you with a warm hug instead of a handshake. He married Linda Stedman in September of 1997 and two families were happily joined as one.

He loved fishing and camping and would rarely spend a weekend at home during the summer months. A favorite pass-time was passing down family history to his grandchildren and sharing funny stories of his younger years, which were many.

He is survived by his mother, Ramona Beug; his wife, Linda; daughter, Trisha (Andy) Carter of Reno, NV; step-sons, Che (Jenny) Stedman of Madison, WI, and Jesse (Dawn) Tubb of Savage, MD.; brothers, David (Mary), Bruce (Corinne), Mark (Barb), and Greg (Jacinda); sister, Carol (Gary) Padrta; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. His six grandchildren, Tayler, Branden, Parker, Elsa, Jayden and Evan will surely miss their Papa. Chris was preceded in death by his father, Herb, and sister, Pamela.

His home was the great outdoors.

His church a mountain lake.

A rule that he lived by

Was to give more than you take.
